A $15,000 CVS Health Community Grant will help the University begin a yearlong smoking-cessation program that will be run through the Center for Health Education and Wellness (CHEW).

The University was selected through the CVS Health Community Grants 2016 application process. This year, grants were specifically awarded to smoking-cessation programs offered in a community setting, which are helping people lead tobacco-free lives and reducing the prevalence of smoking.

“As a pharmacy innovation company, we are committed to building healthier communities, and we believe that providing smoking-cessation programs is one of the most effective ways to help people quit smoking and lead tobacco-free lives,” said Eileen Howard Boone, senior vice president of corporate social responsibility and philanthropy at CVS Health. “We are pleased to support the work that The University of Scranton does in the community, and we look forward to working with them in fulfilling their program’s mission.”
